I certainly don't agree with over-hyping a skater, but you do come off a bit dismissive of what she brings to the table.
Come on, Gracie only has adequate jumps? You made a big deal about how small her 2A was, when in fact the judges scored hers as the fourth best of the night, just a touch behind Kanako's.
And from where I sit she had great ice coverage on her 3F-3T. I hardly call the combo average.
